Our Friends at Mountain View Regional Hospital are sponsoring a 5K to benefit the Facial Pain Association. For information visit: or contact: 

Lisa Hulshizer
(307) 995-8108

The Race to Save Face takes place July 10 in Dover, OH. Details are available on the Race Facebook page: All money raised will be donated to the Facial Pain Research Foundation. Not a runner? There will be events throughout the day for those who are not running but still wish to come and show their support.

The TNA Video Project is a collaboration between TN patients and The Facial Pain Association to raise awareness of facial pain syndromes and to celebrate the Association’s 25 years of patient support and advocacy. Join the Project and let the world hear from you, how this horrific pain can be triggered by something or some action that most people take for granted.
